Split level garden

Split level garden

Brief to this project was to create level areas and interest to the garden by reducing the lawn area

Firstly the levels were established. Wall footings put in and drainage added
The clients here had just had a new conservatory built to the rear of their property and this left the garden space needing some improvements making to it.
Concrete block walls were built – these would form the rear of the walls and give the wall structure more strength. Tie-eyes were added.

Reclaimed wall stone was then added to the front of the block work. This was built with a dry stone wall effect and mortared together in the centre cavity to hold the stones all in place.

A new fence was added to the boundary and steps took you to the different levels. Topsoil was then brought in and added to the plant beds and new lawn areas.

The lawn topsoil was levelled and grass seed added.  The plant beds had mulch and compost mixed in and planted up with seasonal interest.
